Why Jungle Disk isn’t a good option for your VPS

I started using Jungle Disk for my Dedicated Server at Softlayer. It’s a rather beefy Dual Quad Core Xeon E5420 with 12GB of memory. It’s not a sloth at all. The setup was simple, I selected the directories I wished to have backed up and also configured email alerts. I’ve had no problems with Jungle Disk on my dedicated server.

However, this is not the case with my two VPS servers. Jungle Disk seems to use quite a bit of memory over time, as you can see below this is after Jungle Disk has been running for 4 days.

root     20027  0.4 29.9 956268 78560 ?        SNsl Apr05  30:37 /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

As you can see out of the 256MB of memory allocated to the VM, jungle disk is taking up 29.9% which seems to occur after a couple of days.

I brought it up with Jungle Disk support, they said to upgrade and I still had the same memory usage if not worse afterwards. At which point they replied with.

Hello –
Thanks for the update.
At this time, there is no resolution to the large memory footprint, however, we are aware.
Regarding the connection to Amazon… Jungle Disk utilizes many EC2 instances as our back end infrastructure. Thus, you’ll always see connections to Amazon AWS.
If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to update this ticket.
Thanks,JungleTravisJungle Disk Support

Western Digital developing 20,000RPM drives

That's right, this isn't a joke.
The new drive will be very similar to the recently-released VelociRaptor, in that it’ll be a 2.5in drive with a custom 3.5in housing built around it. Details are incredibly light at this stage, given that the product is still in development, and we don’t even have a release timeframe at the moment. However, our sources said that the drive will be ‘silent’ – that’s the last thing I would have expected from a drive with platters spinning at 20,000 RPM. Western Digital is apparently working on silencing the beast by improving the housing technology, which will now not just act as a heatsink, but also as a noise cancelling device. We’d also hope that the drive enclosure has some vibration dampening technology as well, because that’s also likely to be a problem given the high spindle speeds.

Auto Bounced Messages Management vBulletin Module Helps Purge Bad Email Address On Your Forum

I was browsing through my mail spool on my machine, and I noticed that there were some messages in one of my accounts for a vBulletin forum. After further review, it was some bounce backs that had accumulated from users that didn't have a valid email address. I then started to do some Google searches for a vBulletin module (vBulletin's search is horrendous and practically useless) and found this module.
